Description This document provides Ecology’s response to public comments submitted for the Kimberly Clark World Wide Site and the draft Amended Agreed Order, draft Interim Action Work Plan (Exhibit G to the Amended Order), and the draft State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) Mitigated Determination of Non-Significance (MDNS). The SEPA MDNS is for Kimberly-Clark’s overall project that includes Ecology’s Order and Interim Cleanup Action and the company’s removal of crushed material.

Ecology prepared an Amended Agreed Order to allow for the actions described above at the Site. The Interim Action Work Plan describes the process for managing contaminated soil and groundwater in the soil removal areas and details the approach for plugging pipes and monitoring groundwater pH.

Nine areas are targeted for soil removal as part of this interim action. The contaminants in one or more of the soil removal areas include copper, lead, mercury, zinc, petroleum, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), and PAHs.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
